Capital works or recent improvements

A broadband enabled tele-ophthalmology system is now available at the Bamaga PHCC. This is part of a $2 million research project funded jointly by the Australian, Queensland and Western Australian Governments, and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation.
